Last night, I went out with my family. I have been thinking to try this new (not so new anymore) restaurant from quite some time now. So we headed to Bahadurabad to have some good dinner and family time at After Eight Restaurant.
Here’s what we ordered:
1) Moroccon Style Chicken
This was my brother’s order. I did take a bite or two. According to him, the taste could have been better. He said it didn’t hit the right note. When i tried it, I was not impressed. The sauce needs to have that ting which is missing. The chicken, however, was well cooked!
My rating: 6/10.
2) Stuffed Chicken
This was my order. I prefer my food non-spicy. I mentioned the same to my server and he took care of that pretty well.
Chicken was very well cooked. The stuffing was good too. I would really recommend these people to add more cheese and cream to the white sauce. Garnishing could have been done with green peppers instead of carrot. I’d love some bell peppers or green onion on that!
Mashed potatoes lacked the creaminess. If only they could add more cream and cheese, it would be perfect!
This might look small from the picture. But let me tell you. I could only had one. The rest i got parceled and had the left over in my lunch. So it was good value for money too.
Overall, my dish was good.
My rating: 8/10.
Lasagna was served with a side of bread roll. This was mom’s order and I obviously tasted it too!
Out of these 3 main course, I didn’t like Lasagna at all.
Here’s what went wrong:
- Too much tomatoes (as in the sauce), too less creamy. Lack of cheese.
- Carrots again. WHY?
- Bread was plain. No butter, cream etc?
My rating: 5/10.
4) Dessert: Chocolate Heaven Cake
We also ordered some dessert. Only one flavor was available in the cakes. And i am so happy i didn’t miss it! This was the best thing in the entire menu. Needless to say, the dessert was the “star of the night”.
It was a perfect dessert. So soft and chocolaty, I could eat it all my life!
MUST TRY. I REPEAT, MUST TRY!
My rating: 12/10.
Did i mention that you get a 10% discount if you are a CBM student? OH YES. I realized this when i ordered my food. It just hit me that this was a fellow student venture. And obviously, I got the discount too upon showing my Student ID card.
(This doesn’t mean the review is outcome of some bribery LOL. I have been pretty honest here. I’d write the same if they didn’t gave me the discount y’know!)
Would i go there again?
Yes. For the cake and Stuffed chicken (I am expecting more creamy/cheesy next time)!
Some points the chef should note down:
- Don’t add carrots for garnishing in all the dishes.
- Don’t go all miser when it comes to adding cream/cheese.
- You are missing the right note!
Staff: 9/10 (Well informed servers and very well mannered too!)
Value for money: Good
